Solutions on How to Remove Rats
Rats are found everywhere and the problem it creates is just hectic. Rats are very dangerous creatures, since they cause the deadly disease “plague”. Mostly rats move in a building for food and shelter! If they easily find the foods in your abode, they feel it comfortable to live in your house forever.

Rat removal can be done in two ways possibly! One is by using chemicals, whereas the other one is by using traps. Before using the traps or chemical, you must first identify and find out the way it uses to move in your house.

If you only want to get rid of rats without killing, then use human traps and if killing rat is not an issue for you then you can use killer traps or even chemicals also. But remember, using chemical for rat removal may harm your pets and kids, since these chemicals are toxic. So while placing chemicals be sure that they are out of reach from your kids and pets. Normally after inhaling those chemicals, rats die in few minutes. It may move around anywhere inside your home and die.

There are some deadly rat removal traps available in the market such as glue traps, snap traps etc. Glue traps are a cruel method of catching rats because once rat are trapped in, it starts struggling to free itself from those traps. While struggling, its hair and skins will be pulled out hardly and even some times they broke their own legs. In case, if the rat’s face sticks in the glue they’ll die because of suffocation. If you didn’t remove the trapped rat from the glue trap, then the rat will die in 4 to 5 days due to starvation. This is why it is important and necessary to check the glue traps regularly. If you are using glue traps and rat is stuck in glue, then drop small amount of baby or cooking oil and set the rat free far from your house. After doing this wash your hands properly with soap, even if you have used gloves.
Snap traps are also available to remove rats from your house but they will also injure the children and large pets if they are caught. Snap Trap can kill rats quickly, but if the rat is only injured then you have to kill the rat by yourself. Removing the dead rat from the trap is quiet tedious and also it is a messy job to do. It is also difficult to set the trap, because it injures the user’s finger too. Cage traps are human traps which are pretty easy to use and also they are easy to release the rat from the trap. It is also safe for children and pets, but these traps have to be checked regularly. Using these traps are stressful too, because rats are very shy animals and if they get something new to their surrounding then they will never go to that place until they get familiar of that. So it may take 2 or 3 days for the rats to be caught and this is also true that sometimes this trap is ineffective and rats may eat the bait without getting caught. Electrical traps are also available, but it is true that it also difficult to clean them.
Protections from rats are always better than the removal of rats. Clear all those things from your house which rats love to eat or chew. Doing so, you can stay away from those mischievous rats.
